PS Vita To Sell 1.4 million, But Could A US Release Push It Past The 3DS

The PS Vita is under tight scrutiny right now. Being released to claims of technical problems, and some strong yet questionable sells numbers, everyone is watching closely to see how the PS Vita performs out of the retail gates. Having already sold over three hundred thousand units in just two days, the PS Vita is still trailing behind Nintendo’s worst portable hardware launch of the 3Ds, which sold around 371,000 units in its two days on the market.
Despite the false claims of technical issues, and a fabricated apology from Sony, The portable gaming future of the PS Vita could still be a bright one.

I'll definitely will be picking up a Vita come Feb. MvC, Fifa, and Uncharted will be my top three games to buy.

Rynx2491d ago

I will be getting Uncharted and Little Deviants.

Snookies122491d ago

I'll be getting... Wait shoot, I don't have money... :\

But I will be getting a Vita! lol

Abash2491d ago

Im getting a PlayStation Vita: First Edition bundle along with Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Unit 13

PshycoNinja2491d ago

With my First Edition PSV I am getting Gravity Daze and ModNation Racers: Road Trip! Both games look awesome.

As for the media like I said in a previous article, unfortunately this is the state of our games media today. Anything that can get them hits and garner them a bunch of money they will do it in a heart beat.

I am tired of dishonest, bias journalist and their underhanded tactics. Of course engadget and other site wont acknowledge that they are wrong and will blame Sony for "beating around the bush". I still just cant believe how undermining the media is these days.

Already imported my Vita and an 8GB from Japan, ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT so far. I'm now waiting on Uncharted: Golden Abyss to get here. Also waiting on the US release so i can play all my PSP games on that beautiful screen.

I really gotta ask this question because I'm completely oblivious to the marketing in America because I've been living in Shanghai for the past 5 years.

Do people know about the Vita? What it's capable of? And what hardware around it's capability regularly costs?

I'm dead honest with these questions, I have no clue.

Here in China, children love the psp/ipad. But when I tell them that the PSP2 just came out in Japan.

They're all like, what's a psp2?
It's not a legal platform to sell here but still. You'd think they would have heard something from someone at school.

THESONYPS3 pretty much summed it up...
As an American (not the lazy basement dwelling Muslim hating, self righteous idiot) and I can tell you first hand that even my 6 year old daughter knows about the Vita... She is mad at Sony right now for making her dad wait two months for his Christmas

jukins2491d ago

have my first edition bundle already preordered and almost a 2nd for the kids paid off. But i will say this im kinda tired of sony being put under the microsope so much more than any other video game company. All the articles about it today are saying "PS vita outsold by 3ds" while leaving out that it was 7days of sales of the 3ds and 2 days for the psv, not to mention monster hunter debuted on the 3ds which is like crack to japanese gamers.

oh well cant wait for it to come out in NA.

rickhunter892491d ago

hope fully us ver comes with a memory card included !

xX-StolenSoul-Xx2491d ago

wow kudos to them.

Ima pick up a Vita but the memory card prices are so high. Meh

jujubee882491d ago

In the US, the 4GB and 8GB memory card prices are set but, SCE has yet to officially announce the price of the 16GB and 32GB memory cards.

It is really doubtful that the 32GB memory card would be over $100 USD when it launches in the US.

Jio2491d ago

Yeah, for some reason I think it'll sell better in the US than Japan. Right now, there aren't many popular Japanese games for the PS Vita, but when it lands in the US Uncharted will be major and Call of Duty with integrated PS3 play will push it through the roof.

metsgaming2491d ago

yea they need to announce something on that call of duty game before the release date. The name, a screen something. I dont like COD but it can do the vita wonders especially if the online is as fully fledged as the consoles. Hopefully it wont be the same exact COD that releases next fall. (waits for all COD games are the same comments) lol
